One pan and a handful of ingredients are all you need for this easy chicken and potatoes recipe!
Hearty root veggies are lightly seasoned and added to a pan with chicken thighs to create an oven-baked meal with no fuss!
An Easy Favorite
We love this recipe because it’s a quick way to make a roast chicken dinner.
The ingredients are easy to find and easy to prep and clean up is easy too!
We like the oven method because the veggies come out roasted, browned, and crispy, just like the chicken skins!
Ingredients and Variations
CHICKEN Choose bone-in and skin on chicken for the best flavor. We prefer thighs in this recipe but chicken breasts will work too.
POTATOES Use thin skinned potatoes (like red or yellow) or baby potatoes because they don’t need peeling and hold their shape well.
VARIATIONS This recipe is a no-fail blend of root veggies and protein that’s a whole meal in itself! For a little more color and variation, we like to substitute (or add!) sweet potatoes, turnips, or radishes.
